18 & 19 JUNE 2015 - TORUN, POLAND















THE FOURTH INTERNATIONAL Conference on Interventional Pain Medicine & Neuromodulation in Central Europe took place in the medieval city of Torun, Poland on 18 & 19 June 2015.

Following the successes of the conferences in Wroclaw 2011, Sopot 2012 and Warsaw 2013, we chose the birthplace of the great astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus for the next meeting in the centre of Europe.

The Polish Neuromodulation Society, the Interventional Section of the Polish Association for the Study of Pain and the London Pain Forum once again joined forces to organise an expert programme of lectures and discussions with a leading international faculty.

We also organised the 8th Hands-on Cadaver Workshop on Pain Intervention, Neuromodulation & Ultrasound after the Torun Conference on Saturday, 20 June 2015 at the Medical University of Gdansk.  For further information on the workshop, visit the 2015 WORKSHOP WEBSITE
